Default Explorer.exe is using more and more ram

Explorer.exe is eating my ram at a rate of 12k per second.
Therefore after a couple of hours the computer (4GB ram) gets very slow.

The workaround I am using is to stop explorer.exe and then restart it.

I have run virus and spyware etc programs and all find nothing.

I even have stopped all services run under explorer.exe but no joy.

In safe mode it doest eat the ram and also I have all the lastest drivers, firmware updates, window updates and patches.
